Africa-Press – Zimbabwe. Over 200 vulnerable families in the Midlands Province of Zimbabwe received a helping hand from the Gweru-based River Valley Group of Companies. The company donated hampers containing food and other household consumables to these families, offering much-needed support and relief. The gesture was met with appreciation and gratitude from the beneficiaries, who expressed their heartfelt thanks to the company for its generosity.

The food hampers were distributed at a ceremony held at River Valley Group’s premises in Gweru. Speaking at the event, Dr. Smelly Dube, the Chief Executive Officer of River Valley Group, highlighted that the support provided to vulnerable households was part of the company’s annual commitment to giving back to the community. She emphasised that the hampers were a small way of assisting families who were facing numerous challenges. Dr. Dube further explained:

Through our subsidiary S & M Hand of Compassion, we have a day we have set aside annually to give back to the community. We are aware of the challenges that many families are facing, especially widows and persons with disabilities, and we believe that this small gesture will lighten the load on these families.

The beneficiaries expressed gratitude for the company’s kindness. Solomon Gwengwe, the president of the Midlands Association for the Promotion of the Rights of the Blind, said:

I am very grateful to Dr. Smelly Dube and River Valley Group of Companies for what they have done for us. Dr. Dube has always come to our aid such that words fall short of describing the impact this gesture has in uplifting the livelihoods and welfare of us, persons with disabilities.

Another beneficiary, an elderly woman with a visual impairment, was overwhelmed by the company’s generosity. She expressed her gratitude, stating:

I am overwhelmed by the generosity of Dr. Dube and the River Valley Group because quite often people discriminate and frown upon people with disabilities. Dr. Dube and her husband (Mncedisi Dube) are a different breed of people because they are so loving and uplift someone from the dust.

Tarisai Mudadigwa, the Acting Gweru District Development Coordinator, acknowledged River Valley Group for complementing the government’s efforts in catering to the less privileged in the community.

As the business community or development partners, you do not compete with the government efforts but you complement these government efforts. Therefore, I want to thank River Valley for complementing government efforts when it comes to catering to the less privileged people in our communities.
